The last third for our profile of the Doomsday Man and Kerwin Korman, who form an Avengers-class Marvel Comics villain. With links to the two previous bits, of course.

The “classic” (well, if you’re in your 40s I guess) part of Spider-Man foe the Shocker’s career – 1967-1989, before Marvel started fleshing out his simple characterisation. A good stock jobber, I think.
